Summary: Abstract--Multiobjective Genetic Algorithms (MOGA) and
Case-based Reasoning (CBR) have proven successful in the
design of MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) suspension
systems. Object-oriented data structures of primitive and
complex genetic algorithm (GA) elements have been developed
to restrict genetic operations to produce feasible design
combinations as required by physical limitations or practical
constraints. Thus, virtual linkage between genes and
chromosomes are coded into the properties of pre-defined GA
objects. A new design problem requires selecting the right
primitive elements, associated data structures, and linkages that
promise to produce the best gene pool for new functional
requirements. In this paper, biomimetics is proposed as a
means to examine and classify functional requirements so that
case-based reasoning algorithms can be used to map design
requirements to promising initial conceptual designs and
appropriate GA primitives. The concept is demonstrated using
micro-mechanical resonators.
